FOTD | Purple Ombre Lip & Sleek Makeup paired with Nouva Couture

1 Jul 2014

I went crazy with the Ombre lips on this Sunday, lol. Regardless, I still pulled it off and wore it to church. My mom did wonder why the 'unnecessary' brightness.

I was wearing one of my Nouva Couture gowns and a gold detailed throw-over from Elsie Vintage. Unfortunately my sister wasn't in her element and didn't take nice pictures + it rained heavily that day too so no good lighting.

Anyone want to know what happened to my hair here?
Well, I got back late from work during the week with the thought of washing my hair uppermost in my mind. It didn't occur to me that I should have included the time for detangling & combing in the time allocation. SO I ended up washing my hair and applying conditioner without detangling and combing out.
Oh, the shrinkage! But I kinda loved it though.
Had to trim the hair again within 3 weeks but didn't really mind.


  1. Would have loved to have seen your whole outfit that day. I know how hard it can be to take pictures for one's blog atimes, and sometimes nature just doesn't play ball!

    1. You can't imagine how sad I was that day when the rain didn't let up after church.
      It is such a beautiful dress too. Next time hopefully.

  2. Nice,please what shade of maybelline clear smooth powder did you use?

  3. Your make-up is flawless and I absolutely LOVE your hair!
    Love from Nairobi, Kenya

  4. I love your make-up. It reminds me of Nigeria.
